(1934) Gerald du Maurier, George Curzon, Grete Natzler, Belle Chrystall, Leslie Perrins, Henry Victor. Curzon is great as the suave yet crazed doctor who has devised a formula that puts people into a death-like trance so he can then claim their life insurance. Scotland Yard commissioner Du Maurier investigates but fails to realize than his own medical adviser (also Curzon) is the criminal mastermind behind this nefarious plot. Similar in some ways to Lugosi’s Dark Eyes of London. Not to be confused with the Paul Wegener film from 1932. From a beautiful 16mm print.
